Leisure & Tourism

Work throughout the day and variety shows and restaurants in the evening? The Überseestadt is a developing quarter with a wide range of leisure and tourism opportunities, consisting of events, gastronomy, culture and sport. This constantly growing choice of activities fills the quarter with life outside office hours. 

Lots has been done over the past few years and people continue to flock to the Überseestadt for its leisure possibilities…

The Überseestadt’s offering includes a wide selection of:

  • Gastronomy
    The gastronomic diversity of the Überseestadt ranges from traditional German pubs to the gourmet temple reminiscent of the Arabian Nights. Our gastro map shows where to find each restaurant, bistro, café and street vendor in the quarter.
    We’ve also published a list of the entire gastronomic selection.

  • Shopping opportunities 
    The Überseestadt’s shops are especially centred around the Europahafen. Various retailers have established their businesses here, from supermarkets to upmarket kitchen studios. The selection is constantly expanded to meet the needs of the growing quarter.

  • Culture
    Let the show begin! The GOP variety theatre in Bremen attracts visitors to the Überseestadt with a new show every six months. Everything is on the card, from acrobats and singers to magicians. If you fancy, you can also enjoy a three-course meal with the show.

    Things are a bit more rough-and-ready at the HafenRevueTheater, where humorous plays are presented on the small stage – a rustic theatrical experience.

    If you would like to learn about the history of the Überseestadt and particularly Bremen’s ports, the Speicher XI Harbour Museum is the right place for you. The charming museum is located in an old cotton storehouse and has kept the location’s original style. It presents the past and present in an illustrative, playful and entertaining way.

  • Sport and leisure opportunities
    Coffee seminars in a small roastery along the docks, team-building exercises in the former port depots, workouts at one of the biggest gyms in Bremen, Segway tours through the quarter, mini golf under black light, gin tasting and gin making courses in the Glass Factory, and skating at the Überseepark – the Überseestadt has the right leisure opportunities for (almost) every taste!
